Hungary ponders Chinese and Russian vaccines as vial production increases
CGTN Europe • 2m 36s
Hungary's government is considering using Chinese and Russian COVID-19 vaccines as well as jabs from Pfizer/BioNTech and AstraZeneca after ramping up preparations for vaccinations.
The country has increased its production of vials in which COVID-19 vaccines will be delivered, but it remains unclear which vaccine it will use and when a roll-out will begin.
There are as yet no approved vaccines in Hungary but the country has tied down 17.5m doses from several manufacturers from all over the world.
Hungary is thought to be talking to China's state-owned manufacturer Sinopharm.
On Wednesday, Sinopharm's vaccine was claimed to be 86 percent effective by the United Arab Emirates but no detailed trial results have yet been released.
